Now More Than Ever

 

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted each of us – but it has not done so equally.

The unprecedented events of this year have undoubtedly highlighted the deep, systemic challenges our students face every day. Addressing these issues requires more than the resolve of our incredible students; it takes the support of a community dedicated to helping students realize their full potential.

The pandemic has caused staggering job losses, and our students are increasingly struggling to afford necessities. In recent months, our students’ emergency assistance requests have been for the most basic of needs, such as rent and utilities (57%) and food (52%). To ensure that students have access to the support they need, all contributions will be allocated to our emergency student relief programs: Bridge Tuition Support Assistance (BTSA) and the Circle of 100 Emergency Fund. These funds provide:

  • Tuition funding for students who have used all of their financial aid and need an extra push to reach graduation.

  • Emergency support to help students afford rent, food, medical care or utilities.

  • Assistance to purchase materials necessary for course related expenses, such as books, examination and certification fees, and more.

Hostos students have responded to this crisis with resilience and strength. They are determined to overcome their current challenges, persist and earn their degrees. Together, we will enable student success.

Thank you for being a friend to Hostos Community College students, and for making this investment in our community. 

Make your year-end gift today in support of Hostos students and invite others to do the same.

Thank you for giving!
